Hey what is a straight razor called in Pashto? I'm talking about the kind the barbers use back home to shave heads and stuff. We use the word ustra, but that is Turkish is origin, coming from the Turkish word ustura.

I do know that a strop (the leather thing you hone razors on) is called a paRaq.

If anyone knows, please post it here. Thanks.
